When I Am Stuck With A Problem
I turn to the people who I know
That will give me honest advice
If you went to the hospital
Because you needed surgery
Lets start small
Say for a broken arm
The doctor will operate later today
Then you will be home in one day
Would you take the time to read
A free magazine called Dr. Who ?
In each issue a fun way to look at a hospital
There are so many people in a hospital
That make our stay a pleasant one
Maybe ten pages in all
Some pages talking about different operations
In an easy to follow diagrams
Over simplified to make us interested and curious
Like a mystery novel
Then in the last line
Everyone here in the hospital would like to leave you with this final thought
Please make our day
Get better and stay away
Take our advice
Underneath different autographs of patients and hospital personnel
Made into a beautiful page Mural
I want to notice
The important people that we might miss
Just like celebrities and athletes
Who deserve to be in the spotlight
With their name honored and appreciated
Well that is as far as I have for now
If your are interested in finding out more ?
I welcome all your thoughts and opinions
We are all making the next issue
Better than it has to be
Maybe an exciting twist hidden in the pages
Where ten people are randomly picked
To receive free bonus gifts
That could be anything from gift cards to flowers
Five for patients and five for anyone working at the hospital
To remind everyone
You are special
You are loved
A recap of everything I have said
A magazine in the hospital
That relates to what you might be going through
Light hearted and funny
Making you forget why you are here
You could even be in the next issue
Not filled with medical terms that know one understands
A non technical hands on approach
A weekly magazine that an older person can see
Large enough print you won't need to use glasses
Bold print and filled with crazy cartoons
Talking about patients experiences and their recovery
In the middle and sometimes on the front page
One Big Thank you card
Made into a collage
With so many beautiful names on it
A wonderful mix
Both patients and hospital staff
As far as I know this hasn't been done
I would love to see it happen
Where people find kindness
To be the best healer of them all

Michael-Milec I totally understand where you are coming from. You are blessed. There are many children and adults who have serious conditions that can't escape the need for doctors and nurses constant help. When in that situation it is good to put your mind and thoughts in a positive place. Thinking like this can only add to a better and healthier you. Meanwhile searching for a speedy recovery. Some things are beyond our control in Gods hands. I have also been healthy and living a busy life. I am fortunate to be able to have time to write and share my thoughts with so many other people. Welcoming all opinions and advice. Thank you for reading and sharing. May all your healthy routines serve you all your life.

Hospitals are for people, people are for hospitals, doctors are needed. Surgeons are needed. They kept me for three days in a hospital when my full replacement hip surgery was performed. I am a busy person, I work for living and do not have time to be sick. Not at all! I do not want it, don’t need it and if a sickness approaching me I send it away before comes closer to me. For me works when I speak to it, sternly and seriously sending it away, it leaves .. . Once a secret how to maintain wellbeing has been revealed to me, I have disciplined myself : Speaking right, hearing right, eating and drinking healthy and keeping active, moving, moving, after that follows sleeping healthy...

Kari Poulsen I went to Barnes and Noble to look at the magazine section to get ideas. Seeing if there is anything like it. Many magazines to pick from. Mostly ads in each magazine. Wouldn't it be something if the ads were replaced with personal profiles of random people talking about themselves and telling other people why they love their family or a loved one so much. So the article is not about them but them giving thanks to someone very special in their life. I like that so much better than reading ads about prescription drugs and life insurance. I then walked over to the book section and did find a book titled Dr. Who? So maybe we could use another name. I thought Dr. Who was appropriate because usually until this point in time we didn't have to go to the doctors and didn't even know the doctor existed until we needed help. Then we wanted the best in the field to make us better. You ever notice that the mood in a hospital is quiet and boring. T.v.s on in each room. People not connecting but each in their separate dramas. Like People Power or The Real Me there are so many names that can describe people that here to get better and want other people to get better too. In a me generation so many people are glued to their phones nobody even looks up. There are many hours visiting that are spent so quiet. Thinking when are you coming home? What is the next step? The visitors all trying to juggle their schedules to see the people they love for an hour or just any amount of time before they have to go to work or home and get supper for the kids. Life goes on. I often think many thoughts that sound good in my mind until they hit the paper then they become like a wet newspaper. Soggy and soon good for nothing and have to be thrown out. Until that time I appreciate your kind thoughts and that is what makes me happy. Have a lovely night.

This is a wonderful idea! Just the thought makes me happy.

Gypsy Rose Lee When we are in our darkest moments it is nice to know people are all around us looking to help. Feeling the thoughtfulness and inspiration to move on. Being able to laugh and enjoy small moments of happiness. So we all can feel good about ourselves and be proud of it. Thank you for reading and caring.

Nice and comforting thoughts.

Nellieanna Hay I often wondered if the all natural cures work better than modern science. I guess when you sick you just want to get better. This year is suppose to be one of the worst cases of the flu. February is going to be the worst month. A couple of years back I got the flu shot and I was never so sick. The past few years no shot healthy as a horse. Thank you for reading and caring. Take care and do what you have always done. It is working well.

Yes, that would be very nice, because it would mean that more people are healthy and staying healthy! That would be such a great benefit to PEOPLE! Hospitals are wonderful for many reasons, but they're being overcrowded more than they used to be.
Sometimes it seems as though TV and all kinds of advertising is pushing people to do and to eat less healthy things, to 'think sick' and take more meds, so that more people end up on the illness merry-go-round.n It's sad and tragic.

Nellieanna Hay I have only been in the hospital a few times too. I recently have spent more time visiting people I know that have had their share of troubles. It got me thinking. Thank you for reading and sharing. Wouldn't be nice to see hospitals half empty maybe some day.

Interesting, but - sigh. I avoid hospitals. See the doctor only for annual checkups, other than for dental and vision.
